Morning photography at Appleton Farms
Photograph the crops and livestock of Appleton Farms.
Instructor: Niklas Weikert
A professional photographer with 16 years of landscape photography experience, previous instructor at Hunt’s Photo and Video, and working photographer at Pilot
Join Appleton Farm Photographer Niklas Weikert on a morning walk around the crops and livestock. Topics will include macro, landscape and livestock photography. Learn skills and techniques to photograph small details and wide landscapes that come together to tell a narrative. A common restriction when photographing livestock is not being to get close to your subject. We will discuss how to overcome and work around physical barriers when trying to photograph a subject.
All skills and knowledge levels welcome.
** This class may require frequent crouching and standing (to get a closer angle to the crops/livestock). Please be aware you may be in close proximity to livestock and wildlife, please be aware that these are animals and may act in an unpredictable manner. Always be aware and mindful when near any animal. Please be respectful of where you step when photographing the crops. Depending on where the cows are we may walk on uneven terrain.

The class will meet at the parking lot by the Farm Offices. After an initial introduction, we will walk out to the farm where we will break off into two small groups. Each group will cycle between photographing the crops and photographing the livestock, the instructor will float between the two groups answering questions, and offering feedback. Halfway through we will come back together as one group and walk out to where the cows are grazing or to their pen. Towards the end of the class we will regroup by the farm store and have a small discussion and recap on the topics we covered.
